Roger Stone, a veteran political consultant, lobbyist, strategist, and opposition researcher noted for his ability to find the weaknesses of opponents says; the Republican Senator, John McCain appears to be suffering from mental health problems.
John McCain, widely regarded as a war hero was a leading opponent of the Obama administration and has been leading the charge as a ranking member of the so-called Never-Trump faction of the GOP.
According to Roger Stone, McCain appears to be “jealous, bitter, cranky, and reckless.” He says McCain’s accusation that, ‘Roger Stone needs to explain his ties to the Russians,’ is an unhinged attempt to deflect from the fact that McCain has ties to Saudis, which in turn arouse suspicions that McCain has some connection to the many pay to play infractions of the Clintons as related to Saudi Arabia.
Stone says the Saudis wrote McCain a ‘very large check’ for his institute. The allegations McCain makes, Stone says, “are the charges of a wild man.”
“I would welcome the opportunity,” Stone affirms in an interview with the Central Florida Post, “either in the Senate or in the House, to answer any and all questions under oath about Russian influence.”
Roger Stone has had a prominent role in the controversy surrounding the accusations of Donald Trump’s unproven connection to Russia as well as to the claim made by Trump via Twitter that the Obama administration authorized electronic surveillance against him, his home, and his campaign staff.
He has spoken frequently about his conversations with noted anonymous hacker Guccifer- who reportedly is behind many of the WikiLeaks that incriminated the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and John Podesta to name a few.
Stone has been eager to testify before congress about his belief that Trump was in fact illegally spied on by the CIA. In recent months, he has suffered two assassination attempts. Last year he was treated for a severe case of polonium poisoning, and recently, he was violently rammed by an all-black SUV which fled the scene. Stone was mildly injured and received treatment at a nearby hospital, but quickly returned to the airwaves to talk about his experience.
John McCain recently gave an interview to Business Insider in which he said the Trump administration had many ties to Russia and that ‘this is a centipede from which many shoes are about to drop.’ Interestingly, McCain has little to say about why he believes this or what damning evidence is going to emerge against Donald Trump or his associates.
Presently, Trump himself says he does, in fact, have evidence that he was illegally ‘wiretapped’ in the weeks leading up to the election. Trump refuses to talk about these critical legal points as he says it could hurt the case, which he intends to prosecute forcefully.
But Trump, unlike McCain and the mainstream media has good reason not to share his evidence and a record proving that when he does not speak on a sensitive topic it’s for a good reason. His rhetoric on military action, for example, has been purposefully bereft of detail.
While the press has predictably harangued him about this, he points out that his predecessors all had a terrible habit of informing America’s enemies of our plans by announcing them on television. The recurring result was that the enemy would either be absent from the expected battleground or better prepared than they would otherwise be.
High ranking military leaders have supported Trump for months for his tendency not to give away strategic information just to make political points.
So, when Trump says he doesn’t want to talk about the evidence of wiretapping in interviews, he has far more credibility than the dozens of reporters who have a lot to say about CIA sources which can’t be divulged.
At the moment, this debate has taken somewhat of a backseat to Trump’s push to repeal the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. The President has been working hard to present his case for repealing the failing healthcare law. Millions of Americans have signed up for the government insurance plan, and have been left with unaffordable options for care.
The President did a great deal of negotiating over the plan to repeal the ACA, giving as much as he could to both sides in order to make the plan work. Now, it seems there is too little support on either side to bring the legislation home.
Now, with the Trump administration fighting on these two fronts, many supporters are worried that Donald Trump’s time is too divided for him to be effective.
